What does 100+ years of Strategy and Change experience really look like?

Monday 24 August, 2020

We recognise that how and where we work is an enabler to greater personal and corporate effectiveness. Now, more than ever, how do we make the most of the opportunity to make sure we have got it right? 

Workplace strategy and organisational change programmes are what we do. Aberley is independent of any design brand, project or real estate transaction outcomes and so we are very well placed to partner with you on the development of your future workplace journey of change.

Our approach to interface and engagement is one of friendly challenge and professionalism. Our aim is to encourage stakeholders and staff to see us as ‘one of the team’: to help and support, listen and understand, explore and explain, guide and encourage.

Our senior team of Meirion, Tim and Fiona have combined experience in excess of 100 years. But what does 100 combined years of experience really look like?
